About the Book:
It’s not over yet…
It’s been three years since Haley Hampton rescued her sister, Avery, from a human trafficking ring. They are still struggling through the aftermath as both women desperately long for healing to come. But the emotional wounds are not easily forgotten. And the past is quickly catching up to them. A string of death threats leaves Haley on the hunt for a potential killer. As tensions run high, a single mistake could jeopardize Avery’s life.
Then Haley encounters Elaine, a young teen trapped by human trafficking. Could she be their missing link in the case? Is there anyone they can trust? Haley must rely on God now more than ever if they intend to make it out alive. Will they find a way out of the darkness closing in? Because evil is lurking closer…and determined to win this time.
Oh this book. Where do I start? I had the immense – and I do mean immense – pleasure of reading this book twice before its release. It was so fun to see how it changed and strengthened.
As with the first book in this series (“Not Abandoned”), “Out of the Dark” is a very strong, poignant story, full of action, and truths. The author deals with the topic of human-trafficking with such gentleness and expertise.
Revisiting the familiar characters was an absolute delight – I was so happy in particular to reaquaint myself with a character whom we met in the first book of this series. I was eager to see his journey continue, even though he’s not necessarily a central character. :)
Each of the characters are well-built up, and relatable. Sisters Haley and Avery each have to go through their own unique process of healing; their struggles are present, and very well-portrayed. I believe the struggles a character goes through towards healing is a very good element in novels, and that was evident in “Out of the Dark”. I really loved the healing aspect – the journey of healing. It was beautiful, and meaningful.
Not only is this book full of beauty, it is also full of danger and suspense. There is always darkness to overcome, but sometimes a character questions whether or not it might overcome them.
Have I mentioned that this book is exciting? I can assure you that it’s not a dull one. And that ending – you will just have to read it to find out what I mean. And I highly recommend that you do so!! “Out of the Dark” is a fantastic sequel to “Not Abandoned”, and it is a story I will cherish for many years to come. I can hardly wait to read the next installment in The Mission for Freedom series!
